I'm late to the party with this. I wanted to get it up by the last day of November, but I was in the middle of trying to finish my novel and everything else got pushed into this week so I could get that done, and now I'm playing catch up. But thankfully it's not… Continue reading What I Learned This Fall – 2017
I mentioned previously how I took a big (for me) leap this summer by signing up to be on two different launch teams (I reviewed the first of those books, Holly Gerth's Fierce Hearted, here in case you missed it). The second of those books (actually the first one I signed up for) came out yesterday.… Continue reading Dance in Faith. Stand on Holy Ground. Run on Mission for God.
I did a rash thing back a couple of months ago, and that thing was applying to not just one but TWO book launch teams for books coming out in October. Signing up to that first one already felt a little wild and crazy for me, but taking on a second one? Whoa Nelly. Y'all… Continue reading I’m a Fierce Hearted Woman (and So Are You)
The Apostle Paul extolled the virtues of living a quiet life, and Jesus Christ himself taught that we shouldn’t chase after material goods, but focus instead on serving others and nurturing our faith. Indeed, during his earthly ministry, Jesus seemed to embrace a lifestyle of minimalism and simplicity, trusting God for his every earthly need.… Continue reading A Biblical Case for Simple Living
I'm on a never-ending quest to make my life easier, as are we all, I'm sure. Which is why when I have some "A-ha!" moments I feel like I should share them, just in case there's someone reading this who struggles in the same area(s) I do and who might benefit from my discoveries. (The… Continue reading In Which I Figure a Few Things Out
Happy fall, y'all! This week has been a week. Not a terrible week, but not a great one, either. It started out great with a super-productive Monday, but on Monday night our refrigerator started making unhealthy noises and, sure enough, by Tuesday morning everything had begun to melt and thaw. So that was tons of… Continue reading Link Roundup: Fall Minimalism Edition
September is PCOS Awareness Month. You might not have been aware of that, which is exactly why such a month is needed. PCOS -- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome -- is a disease that's known to affect roughly five million women in the U.S. alone--nearly 10% of the population, including yours truly. But not a lot was… Continue reading PCOS 101
One of my goals for this blog is to inspire you to step out and take bold action in pursuit of your dreams. And I believe one of the best ways to do that is to lead by example. For a long time, I've wanted to start a shop selling my own graphics in the… Continue reading Daydream Studios Shop is Now Open!
I have a history of depression. There, I said it. Admitting this hasn't always been easy for me. In fact, for a long time I was in flat-out denial. I wasn't depressed, I was just tired, or stressed, or just dealing with a lot. Or it was hormones, or Seasonal Affective Disorder. Or all of… Continue reading How a Rock Helped My Depression
It's time for another post about what I learned this season! Which is good because I'm having an unexpectedly hectic week and otherwise I would've skipped posting this week. Which brings me to my first item: I don't have to operate on anyone else's schedule. This is something I finally figured out after allowing myself… Continue reading What I Learned This Summer
